– Parsley is a very effective diuretic that helps eliminate toxins accumulated during the day. Toxins dull the complexion of the skin and promote fat accumulation. So parsley stimulates the kidney function to prevent water retention. This herb also has a high content of antioxidants that prevent sagging skin and slow the aging process. Parsley is also an important source of vitamins (A and C) and minerals (calcium, potassium, magnesium, etc.) that strengthen the immune system and promote smooth functioning of the body.
– Lemon is a slimming ally par excellence. Indeed, it is rich in antioxidants that prevent the accumulation of fats and vitamin C which boosts the metabolism. In addition, this citrus fruit is rich in fiber, especially pectin which swells in contact with water and slows down the digestion of food and offers a sense of lasting satiety. A study in the Japanese Sugiyama Joagakuen University proved that the content of antioxidants in lemon helps to lose weight. For 12 weeks, the scientists studied two groups of mice, the first consumed polyphenols, while the second only followed a healthy diet. The researchers observed that the mice in the first group had a more stable blood sugar and lost weight more significantly than the second group.
Warning: for satisfactory results, it is important to practice regular physical activity at least three times a week, and to ensure a healthy and balanced diet.
